An Inconvenient Diet?

The New York Times is reporting that according to the United Nations, "...the livestock business generates more greenhouse gas emissions than all forms of transportation combined". This was a surprise to me.

I think people would be more likely to change what they drive then change their diet. Given the small percentage of vegetarians it seems like this new issue could fragment the environmental movement. Perhaps this might even cause more harm then good?
